Purpose and Nature of the Initiative
The University of Queensland's Strategic Plan 2005-2009 will include as an operational priority the provision of programs/initiatives to improve the learning experience of first year students.

The First Year Online Learning Funding Scheme aims to encourage the adoption of online learning options where it will enhance face-to-face learning in first year courses.

The Scheme will provide funding to assist with the innovative design or redesign of web-based learning tools for a first year course, with a view to providing enhanced learning opportunities and options for students, and improving student learning outcomes. Priority will be given to projects that involve team-based teaching in large first year courses.

The Scheme will involve the Project Team working with a TEDI team of educational and instructional designers in the incorporation and development of innovative learning resources.

The Scheme is funded by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic). Funding of a maximum of $10,000 per course will be provided on condition that these funds will be matched by funds by the School/s involved in teaching the course. A maximum of two (2) projects per School will be considered for funding.

Funding will be released as Project milestones are met.
